Dear colleagues – The VEuPathDB project (including VectorBase) is up for renewal, which is likely to depend on strong support from our user community. Joshua Benoit has drafted a letter on behalf of the VectorBase community, for which we are seeking endorsement by lab heads worldwide (if you are a PI, feel free to bring this note to the attention of your lab head). Responses will be most helpful if received by 1 Aug 2023 ... do it today!
